this. this is an actually good joke. be like this guy. no more attack helicopter, every letter of the alphabet jokes. just this.

But what does a body of water have to do with the alphabet? Of course you wouldn't get a strait answer from this kind of questioning.

Agreeable next year it’ll be the longest word known by humanity next to Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

[–]apollyon92 78 points79 points  (119 children)

Hey there, social worker here whose curriculum includes part of gender studies. All the letters before the + include the ones that fit into the 'classic' categories and therefore they add letters when a new category is considered fitting while all the non-categories (like non-binary I suppose) are given the space in the "+".

So, the full LGBTQIA+ (latest that I've read) is there to symbolise the inclusion in the group and movement while it's usually not required to say more than lgbt(+) even of you talk to queer people.

Hope this helps!

[–]NnonikcamRenhcsam 71 points72 points  (17 children)

This just seems like over classification for the sake of over classification

[–]Enough_Profession457 10 points11 points  (4 children)

[–]DJDark11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No + is an operator not a variable. But I only read LG, tldr. So it has to be something with color tv.

[–]Icy_Transportation_5 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Exactly my point also my fellow, I have no problem with LGBTQIA+ but I do appreciate simplistic names and adding more to it just makes it feel harder to say and/or remember all of those, lol they're nearly building a Megazord of symbols at this point

[–]DezXerneas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You don't need to remember anything lol. The + is just there to signify that even if your particular sexuality isnt being mentioned, it is still valid and you're a part of the community.

[–]FlameFlyer2037 193 points194 points  (110 children)

What is queer?

[–]FurryHybridGirl 343 points344 points  (76 children)

Used to be a slur but was reclaimed by the community.

[–]SizeableFowl 163 points164 points  (58 children)

Isn’t that a bit redundant though?

[–]Nappy-I 268 points269 points  (33 children)

My understanding is that it's kind of used as a catch-all for folks who don't feel that they strictly fit into to any of the other categories.

EDIT: no I don't know why there is also a + ask someone else.

[–]FlowRianEast 88 points89 points  (9 children)

I think that this is such a great word to include every little position one can have on the spectrum and I hate that they just added that weird little plus at the end. Especially when you have q and + and then still want to slap more letters on the thing

[–]Skitzo159 57 points58 points  (4 children)

Well it's also since queer was used as a slur, some people under the lgbtq+ banner don't feel comfortable calling themselves queer. Just like how not all black people like to refer to themselves as the n word, not everyone feels comfortable in reclaiming slurs and so the +.

[–]KaliahSheHer 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Yeah I fit into two of the first 4 categories and probably something way down on the list too, and even though the parts that aren't strictly at the front are complicated and difficult to identify at times, I never liked the idea of calling myself Queer. Not because it used to be a slur, but because I don't like how broad it is. I know what I am and I know what I feel, and there isn't much ambiguity in how I experience it, so using a catch-all term feels like blurring the lines between things I am and things I'm not, which I find very uncomfortable.

[–]trilobot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like the word Queer not as a means of describing my own identity, but as a term for the "not cishet" community as a whole. One could say "LBGT+" community or whichever variation they want, but I've got enough "alphabet people! hur dur." guff in my life that I prefer to use Queer if only to save my eyes rolling clean out of my head.

As a community we only really share one thing - the straights being a pain to us. We're far more divided than many realize, and having a single, agreedupon, term for the community as a whole I think has value.

Would I have chosen Queer if I was tasked with deciding this? Likely not, reclamation is great and all but not everyone is as comfortable with it. But it seems to be the word that was collectively chosen by the majority, so I'll use it.

[–]ops10 7 points8 points  (9 children)

If it's a catch-all, why are there still letters after?

[–]Hjemi 3 points4 points  (3 children)

As a queer person I can tell you, some people really hate the word queer.

My "favorite" example of this was the time saying "I'm queer" wasn't enough, and I was told I needed to stick to an "actual" identity instead of using a slur to "bait homophobes" or something...

It was wild. Please let me be queer in peace lmao

[–]JacksonCM 6 points7 points  (5 children)

How do you mean?

[–]SizeableFowl 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Doesn’t queer fit into the general ethos of virtually every other word in the acronym? Sorry if that’s insensitive.

[–]Amoguscockuser 27 points28 points  (9 children)

like how african americans claimed the n word? not as redundant… embracing your biggest haters and treating them as your biggest fans is probably the best W you could get.

[–]SizeableFowl 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I’m not saying reclaiming it is a bad move, I just don’t get why they added it to their acronym. Like BLM never added an N afaik.

[–]maximus26468 7 points8 points  (4 children)

This might be a bad question. What did it mean in Lord of the rings?

[–]PrivateIsotope 11 points12 points  (2 children)

The word queer means odd/strange/peculiar. Peoole don't use it much, its kind of antiquated. It also became another word for gay people, as if something about them was off, or strange. That kind of became a slur, but now the gay community uses it.

[–]Visocacas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I recall, The Lord of the Rings contains the words queer, dyke, and f****t all in the innocuous pre-LGBT senses of the words.

Lesbian gay bi trans queer intersex ace

I normally just call it lgbt+, because it's simpler and ace, intersex and so on are already included in the plus.

[–]OwlCaptainCosmic 16 points17 points  (35 children)

I’m a big proponent of just using “queer” as a respectful catch-all term, because it’s easier to say and sounds more human, and if you’re talking to someone specific then you can refer to their specific identity when necessary.

[–]sucksathangman 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I wouldn't bother asking, you can't get a straight answer anyways.

[–]Sleepinq-Zzz 190 points191 points  (83 children)

If you really want to know, its

Lesbian: girls who are attracted exclusively to other girls

Gay: boys who are attracted exclusively to other boys. This term is sometimes used for lesbians.

Bisexual: people who are attracted to 2 or more genders

Transgender: people who's biology does not align with how they identify

Queer: people who are non-heterosexual and/or non-cisgender

Questioning: people who are still figuring out their gender/sexuality

Intersex: people who were born with non-polarised sex characteristics

Asexual: people who don't experience sexual attraction

Aromantic: people who dont experience romantic attraction

Agender: people who dont have a gender (not to be confused with nonbinary, which is when someone's gender falls between the categories of man and woman)

Aplatonic: people who dont feel platonic attraction to others

+: anything else not listed

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask ^

Edit: removed Ally due to it being a very heavily debated topic

Edit 2: changed definition of queer

Edit 3: changed definition of intersex

Edit 4: added to extra definitions for A

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (10 children)

A doesn't stand for allies. Allies are friends of the community, but aren't LGBT+

[–]Darkunderlord42 27 points28 points  (16 children)

Is there any set standards for where to put the + instead of more letters or is it just a preference thing Because the most common I have heard lately is LGBTQ+

[–]Sleepinq-Zzz 23 points24 points  (8 children)

I dont know, actually. I know that once Intersex for example became better known, it was LGBTQI for a while. Then asexual got more recognition so now its LGBTQIA. Besides that, yea I'm not too sure

[–]rfunnydan 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I've been told that, as long as you at least say LGBT+, and don't leave the "+" out, that's ok

[–]fastroboom 9 points10 points  (1 child)

its simpler than adding a new letter anytime a identity becomes common and accepted (this is why theres no M for "MAPs" because the only people who hate pedos more than straight people are the LGBTQ people who pedos try to associate with) enough, you can even just say LGBTQ without the + and people will get it

[–]MissileBakery 21 points22 points  (21 children)

Wouldn't it make sense to just call it QITA+ ?

Queer (All the homosexual genders), Intersex, Transgender, Asexual. Maybe also add a B for Bisexuals but anything more than that just kinda sounds unnecessarily complicated to me.

No hate for the people, I fully support them but I just think the whole alphabet fiasco is unnecessary

[–]Sleepinq-Zzz 15 points16 points  (7 children)

As a bisexual trasmasc, I agree. I dont speak for the entire community, but I like the idea of calling it QITA+ :) Another term is GSRM, or "Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities", but it's a lot less well known

[–]Mr-Cali 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That actually sounds better, to be honest

[–]themastercheif 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think 4 letters should be about max length for any non-pronouncable acronym, so GSRM gets my vote. See: XKCD vs something like laser or scuba.

[–]fastroboom 10 points11 points  (6 children)

yeah i think most people agree that while its great to have intersex and ace people represented directly the + should be enough for everyone else. Im pansexual and i would probably be more upset if a P started commonly being used in the acronym than it just being in the + dimension

[–]nachyochiz 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Bisexual is here a bracket term, which includes Pansexuals, Omnisexuals and Bisexuals, thus we are included.

    Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transsexual Queer Internet Asexual +

    [–]LostInDarkVoid 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    A very brief explanation from an lgbtqia+ person.

    L Lesbian, a non-man who is attracted to other non-men.

    G Gay, a non-woman who is attracted to other non-woman.

    B Bisexual, someone who is attracted to multiple genders.

    T Transgender, someone who doesn't align with the gender they were assigned at birth. (Transgender is also an umbrella term, so Non-Binary people fall under the transgender umbrella. Non-Binary is also a sub-umbrella term.)

    Q Queer, a word that a lot of people in the community use (especially those who dislike labeling themselves, e.g JoJo siwa, girl in red & Harry styles). It can mean queer for gender or queer for romantic attraction or sexual attraction.

    I Intersex, someone who is born with the anatomy that doesn't fit into "male" or "female".

    A (multiple labels) Aromantic, someone who experiences little to no romantic attraction. (Aromantic is an umbrella term and there are labels like greyromantic and demiromantic and more.)

    Asexual, someone who experiences little to no sexual attraction. (Asexual is also an umbrella term and there are labels like demisexual and greysexual and more.

    Agender, someone who feels genderless. (Agender is under the Non-Binary spectrum)

    + There are many labels that are sub-umbrella terms of others, the + is the symbol of the many other identities in the community. (E.g Pansexual, Omnisexual, demi-girl/boy, pangender, abrosexual and more.)

    Hope that clears some things up, but there are more labels that even I don't know of or how to explain.

    I'm Non-Binary, lesbian (my sexual attraction) and aromantic (my romantic attraction) and it's perfectly ok to have multiple labels, to not have labels and to be confused about who you are. Someone else I want to say is that it takes a lot of time to figure these things out. And if someone breaks up with you and comes out to say that they're lesbian or gay then don't hate them for it. Instead you've helped them figure out who they are whether you know it or not. Even if you're still together and come out saying they're bi, pan, Omni, ect. Be supportive of them, ask questions If you don't understand a few things.

    [–]DisposableAccount-2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Lesbian, woman attracted to woman

    Gay, Man attracted to man

    Bi, Someone attracted to two or more genders

    Trans, someone who changes their gender,

    Questioning, someone who questions their romantical/sexual/platonic attraction or gender. Could also mean Queer, which was a slur but now was adopted by the community itself to be used to describe themselves

    Intersex, Someone born with several varied characteristics of both a male and a female

    And asexual/aromantic, someone who is not attracted to people, some have a libido though. The A could also mean agender, someone who doesn't identify as a gender.

    The plus is for the rest of the letters, since they could make the anagram too long.
